Try here: http://brickset.com/detail/?set=70404-1

Brickset does a great job of compiling the different reviews. It's up to you what reviews you agree with!

On a side note, I have noticed that the visored knights now use the light gray/grey visor (like the s9 Heroic Knight), rather than a metallic silver visor like the previous Crownie stuff (I don't think Kingdoms had a silver visored helm?).

There was a silver visored helm in the 2010 Kingdoms Advent Calendar.

I have seen the set boxed up close, but not put together.

I actually detested these sets when they were first released and all I saw were the images on toysnbricks. But I can honestly say after owning all of them (apart from the kings castle) that this is one of my favorite lines ever. I realize the bright and colorful knights may not appeal to everyone, but I just eat them up! :)

There are also a number of video reviews on You Tube.

If someone does a review of this set here on CC, I would be glad if you include a size comparison between the 7946 and the 70404 :) Thank you
